Selden, NY |
Dr. Silverstein and his staff were very friendly and professional. They took time to clearly explain the diagnosis and recommended treatment. Highly recommended!

I took my elderly mother in who has a lot of skin cancer as her old dermatologist retired. The office was nice and the staff was very pleasant. The wait time was short which is important to me because I have a very tight schedule. The doctor was also very pleasant and explained everything I wanted to address. He removed the growths I was concerned about and the follow-up was great. She had to go for Mohs surgery and everything went smoothly. I would recommend him without reservation.

DAVID SILVERSTEIN IS AN ARROGANT YOUNG MAN AS EVIDENCED BY THE 16X20 PORTRAIT OF HIMSELF ON EASEL DISPLAY IN THE LOBBY ...I WAS PAWNED OFF ON TWO YOUNG ASSISTANTS AND WHEN THE GUY FINALLY BLEW IN HE GAVE ME THE ONCE OVER AND DISMISSED ALL OF MY CONCERNS AND QUESTIONS ABOUT MY SKIN CANCER CONDITION ...ABRUPT AND IMPERSONAL AND VERY UNPROFESSIONAL ...WHEN I ADDRESSED MY DISSATISFACTION TO THE PRACTICE ADMINISTRATOR IT WAS SUGGESTED THAT I FIND ANOTHER DERMATOLOGIST ...POINT TAKEN.

Wonderful doctor. He diagnosed my painful, itchy, severe Rosacea and prescribed a medication along with face cream. Within' 3 days my face cleared up! What a relief!!! I would recommend this doctor to anyone with a dermatologic issue.

I have had numerous visits with Dr. Silverstein and have found him to be caring and patient all the way through. I've suffered from an autoimmune condition for several years and he has been truly a lifesaver. I don't know where I would be without him.

I have had several visits with Dr. Silverstein. He is the quintessential professional. He also has a way of putting you at ease and explaining your health concerns in a simple, yet accurate manner.
in Commack |
Excellent caring doctor who actually spends time with you and explains options and easy to talk to, does not rush you out the door, very intelligent, speaks well, and up to date on all latest treatments. No longer have to go into NYC, Dr, Silverstein is THE BEST.
